Julian Assange

Assange Formally Labeled by U.S. as "Enemy"

You know, like the Taliban

THE US military has designated Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as enemies of the United States—the same legal category as the al-Qaeda terrorist network and the Taliban insurgency.

Declassified US Air Force counter-intelligence documents, released under US freedom-of-information laws, reveal that military personnel who contact WikiLeaks or WikiLeaks supporters may be at risk of being charged with "communicating with the enemy", a military crime that carries a maximum sentence of death.
